Last week was all about the rain and cold weather in San Diego. However, the weather is so bipolar in San Diego that sometimes it can be raining one minute and a little cold the next. It may be springtime, but don’t hang up those winter clothes just yet! Although it seems to be a bit too warm or a bit too cold, there are ways to mix and match both your winter and spring clothes. This way you can have the perfect outfit for a rainy day this spring.
Spring and winter outfits are mostly separated by their color palettes. Winter is a bit on the darker side of the color spectrum and spring is on the brighter side. Let’ss break down how this Fashionista used both color palettes to create her excellent cold-day-in-spring outfit.
Let’s get started with her lovely gray and white striped sweater. Since it is not as cold as winter and not as hot as summer, a light sweater, like this Fashionista’s, would be adequate. The colors of her sweater seemed to cope with the weather and matched perfectly with her pair of pants. My favorite item of her outfit was her pair of turquoise green jeans. Her bright denim only had one element to it: spring. They certainly made the statement that it maybe was cold, but it still was spring out! Last but not least, let’s talk about her classic pair of natural canvas Toms. On a rainy day, a pair of sneakers or tennis shoes is crucial to have–after you have your umbrella ready. Toms are a great way to avoid the discomfort of getting your feet wet by the rain. This Fashionista’s ensemble was a perfect example of the idea I previously stated: mix summer and winter clothes to create an ensemble. A rainy day is certainly the best time to create this practical idea into a look.
When it comes to accessories, a simple outfit like this Fashionista’s allows you to have fun as you decide on how to accessorize. You can even rock your favorite hat! A hat is a great idea on a cold and windy day because it helps you to not get your hair so messy with the wind.
